Award-Winning Math Tutors in Baltimore, MD
David "I am a graduate of Yale University, where I earned my Bachelor's Degree in Ecology and Evolutionary Biology. Having a passion for the sciences, I worked in various research positions from studying endangered desert tortoises in the Mojave Desert to studying the population genetics of ornamental fishes of the Amazon. I realized I missed the human connection and pursued medical school at the University of Connecticut; where I've found medicine combines both my love of science and helping others..."
Molly "I love learning, and I believe every subject can be fun and interesting. I studied Linguistics in college, which trained me in the critical thinking skills necessary for teaching Grammar, Foreign Languages, ESL, Math, and standardized test prep. I started tutoring when I was 15, and I was trained as a Student Teaching Intern with Breakthrough in 2010..."
Siyuan "...During college, I studied biology and economics and minored in math. I love math and the sciences and those are my favorite subjects to tutor. There is nothing that makes me happier than seeing my students explain a concept that was previously confusing for them..."
Lucinda "...I attended Southern Illinois University in Edwardsville, Illinois and Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond Virginia. I love to tutor Algebra 1 and 2 and also Business Calculus and Statistics. I truly enjoy the applications of these subjects in daily life, thus, I am able to explain concepts to students in a very comprehensible yet effective manner..."
Jonathan "... After graduating, I worked as a “brain trainer” at a learning center, eventually expanding my role to include cognitive testing, academic and organizational coaching, and SAT/college preparation. This insight into the thought processes of the students coming to our center for services helped me to hone my approach as a tutor, as I believe that I am able to find the best method to convey the information to my students. I was the "jack of all trades" tutor during this time, but my strengths are Study and Organizational Skills, History, Social Studies, Literature and Writing, and General Humanities..."
Eric "I graduated from SUNY Buffalo with my Bachelor's and Master's of Science in Mechanical Engineering and continued to pursue an additional Master's of Science in Computer Science. My tutoring focus is in STEM as that correlates with my background and what I am most passionate about. I believe that the greatest currency in life is knowledge and that one can never learn or know enough..."

Erin "...After graduation, I moved right to DC to begin working on my Masters in Education at American University. I plan to teach secondary Math in DC beginning with the 2014 - 2015 school year. I have been tutoring all through High School and College in an extremely wide range of subjects in Math..."
Justin "... Most of my students have been college students in need of help with General Chemistry and Organic Chemistry. My teaching style centers on explaining concepts and making students think there way through problems. I find many students are unsure of exactly how to study for Math exams and I believe I provide good instruction for how students may best prepare in their personal study time..."
Sarah "... I not only seek to give them the right tools to succeed but also encourage them to believe that when they try, they can improve and succeed. An example of my work includes a student who spoke English as a second language and also had special needs. As I worked with him daily, his reading level increased ten levels and his math scores went from below average to earning over 80% in his final math testing that year..."
Rey "...Each year I look forward to seeing the students do well in the course and often employ the use of metaphors, examples, and models in order to make chemistry less mysterious and ensure understanding of the material. My knowledge of the material allows me to explain the information simply yet adequately using basic principles. Students can then be led to build upon these basics to arrive at more complex conclusions..."
